DONT punch my box! - Page 3

post #31 of 109
Wow! I can't get over the shock of this event! Every post office has a Postmaster General and a Postal Inspector. You just need to find out who they are in your area and file a formal complaint.

I get my mail through a military post office and we are soooo lucky to have the very best postal employees in the states who handle our mail and bundle it up. They are totally awesome and they are the civilian post office employees. I'm thankful none of them are like the horrible people you had to deal with.

Your cookies were beautiful. I would pursue this further and make sure they paid for BOTH batches of cookies, your time and shipping charges to get them where they needed to be or the TV station would be my next phone call along with a call to the postmaster. Keep us posted on this.

I agree document & photograph everything, the box, the cookies. Find out the supervisior's name who you talked too. File a complaint with the USPS and your local police (destruction of property). Finally call your local tv station. Not worth anything, my A**!!! MY G** that just pisses me off!! So sorry for you.

The nerve of him! How dare he do that...even if he was trying to convince you how "sturdy" their boxes are. I would have made such a scene in that place and would have told them they better call the COPS because if they didnt Iwould have and the TV Station! OMG I wonder if I should send my sister her package through them now?????

And the boss???? OMG I would have had her head on a plate by the time I left that place. You should seriously file as many formal complaints as you can..AND tell them the package was for a paying customer!!!!

The nerve of her to say they werent as valuable! If I were you I would go back there today with an invoice and the damaged cookies and talked to the General Manager there and let them know they WILL be reimbursing you for the damaged the idiot did!

What nerve, I had mailed out a car payment about 3 weeks before it was due and in the mail, the day it was due was my check to the car place in a CLEAR plastic bag with a sorry accidents happen. I had to pay $24 bucks to get it overnighted and then still had to pay late fees as it wasn't there before noon the next day. I didn't say anything but I was really upset that the check was in a clear baggie. Note or not. Grrrr, I asked myself, how many people got my account number from that. I went and closed the account and informed the bank about it. Needless to say, I don't send thru the usps for anything important. Sorry this happened to you. Keep us up to date on what happens.....

Even if you were not selling them you could gather information on what it would have cost to purchase custom cookies and push for the USPS to reimburse you. I would not let this go, I can not wait to hear how this turns out.

I have always shipped any packages with UPS. They are just as rough on packages as any other carrier I suppose, but they give you the first $100 of insurance for free. Any claims I have had to make have always been taken care of very quickly, even when it was because I did not package very well. One time they delivered a package or should I say left it on the front porch next to some wood. Well it snowed pretty heavy after they delivered. I filed a claim, they reimbursed and we found the package in spring. icon_lol.gif

I know this is totally off topic, but just further proof that the post office can be really messed up.. I ordered a gift online from Wal-Mart the day after Thanksgiving and got an e-mail the following Monday that it had shipped, including the tracking number, and that at the latest, I should have it by Dec. 8th... below is the tracking information for this package (oh, and obviously I STILL have not received it!!!! icon_evil.gif ) The oldest date is on the bottom....

Your cookies were so pretty and reading this made me so angry for you! I can't even imagine what would've happened to that guy had it been my cookies he destroyed. I'm assuming he'd be in the hospital and I would be sitting happily in jail. icon_twisted.gif

Now, I am DYING to know if you have pursued this further?! I really hope you did. Please update us!!!

OMG!!!!! Now that was funny. I'm so sorry that fool did that to you, & I mean he was a real Jerk & I'm being nice about that. God knows not to allow things like that to happen to me. I have no patience for foolishness & surely no money to post my bail when I mame & injure someone for being stupid. You were good though for allow him to punch that box more than once. On like popcorn is an understatement. When I got through beating that fool he would've been begging for water. Let us know how it turned out & I hope you call the authorities. Someone needs to be held accountable & it wouldn't be cheap.

I would have punched him! I as a few others have said would have gone to jail...LOL! Definitely do as many things possible to get refunded on the cookies. Provide an invoice of how much you would charge for these cookies. It doesn't matter if it was a relative, the post office doesn't know that, it should be treated as you the customer requests! I would file as others have suggested against the automatic $100 insurance.

omg I would be livid!!! I'm also dying to know if you pursued it further. I certainly would!
post #43 of 109
I would have punched him in the face (and maybe a second time for good measure), and when he freaked out, just innocently said... "Well, I thought your face looked pretty sturdy...". icon_twisted.gif

Seriously though, he's a total jerk, as is his boss, and I would be going up as far as I can with a formal complaint. I agree with calling the local TV & radio stations, and it wouldn't hurt to file a complaint with the police as well!

Please let us know how this turns out for you!

Dh just mentioned that you could go after him for destruction of private mail. That would be a felony. Good luck with this! ((((Hugs))))

OMG!!! I would've taken every cookie out of the box and shoved them up his rear! Let's see how sturdy your COLON is buddy!

I'd call every TV station in earshot, every radio station, my local BBB, and the Pope at the Vatican!

SOMEONE WOULD BE PAYING FOR SOME DANGED OREOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I mean after all....you did have about $500 worth of work in that box, right?
